Coachella took an extended hiatus due to the pandemic but is set to return in 2022 with an epic lineup.
Making his Coachella return, Kanye West (now “Ye”) is headlining the festival, which takes place on April 15-17 and April 22-24. Harry Styles, Billie Eilish and Swedish House Mafia also are headlining the event with names like Lil Baby, Doja Cat, Big Sean, Megan Thee Stallion, 21 Savage, Run the Jewels and Baby Keem to support.
Presale for this year’s Coachella begins on Friday, January 14th at 10 AM (PT) with remaining inventory going on sale at 2 PM. Get yours fast because with a lineup this great, they will surely sell out.
Paving the way for the plethora of music festival lineups that will soon follow, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has shared another massive lineup to kick off the festival season.
Headlining Coachella both weekends (April 13-15 & 20-22) will be The Weeknd, Beyonce and Eminem, with some huge supporting acts to precede them.
On Friday fans can catch performances form SZA, St. Vincent, Vince Staples, Daniel Caesar and Kali Uchis to name a few. Fans on Saturday will see sets from HAIM, Tyler the Creator, Post Malone, alt-J and more, before the Queen B takes the stage. Finally, to close things out on Sunday, ODESZA, Cardi B, Miguel, Portugal the Man and more will help Eminem close out both weekends.
Passes go on sale this Friday (January 5th) at noon, and they will surely sell out fast, so don’t wait! Visit Coachella’s official website for pricing and more information.
Sorry, Beyonce fans! You will have to wait until 2018 to catch Beyonce’s headlining performance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. According to a statement from festival officials, Beyonce has followed the advice of her doctors “to keep a less rigorous schedule” and therefore will forgo performing at Coachella this year.
But while Coachella lost their best headliner to date today, they also gained their best headliner to date today as well, as Beyonce instead will perform at the premiere California music festival in 2018.
Fans everywhere were initially optimistic that Beyonce would still perform this year, because she’d either give birth to her twins before her Coachella performances or she’d rock a kick-ass performance while carrying twins, because if anyone can do it…it’s Beyonce. But unfortunately the above will not be the case, and Beyonce will take it easy, and we can’t blame her.
Stay tuned to see if Coachella will announce a new 2017 headliner to fill Beyonce’s shoes, but in the meantime, you can start counting down the days until Coachella 2018.
It’s probably time for Coachella to start looking for a new headlining act for the festival’s back-to-back weekends. Although there hasn’t been any official cancellation as of yet, common sense would dictate that Beyonce will not be able to headline the Indio, CA festival this April.
After Beyonce blessed us all with the news that she is pregnant with twins, her ability to perform is of course affected. Beyonce has performed while pregnant before, in fact she announced her first pregnancy during a performance in 2011 at the MTV Video Music Awards. However, she was not as far along as she will be during Coachella this year, and that performance was just a few songs.
Beyonce is Beyonce, but she is still human, and at the time of Coachella she will be about 7 or 8 months pregnant and in no position to put on two huge headlining performances. And if you’ve ever seen Beyonce live, she doesn’t just sit on a stool with her mic stand. Some women aren’t even advised to fly on an airplane that far along, none the less perform on the biggest stage in the U.S. One thing that is for sure, if Coachella does have to put in a sub for Beyonce, she casts a huge shadow for any possible replacement.
Stay tuned as we will update our readers with any new information.
Heading to Indio, CA for another memorable year at Coachella this year will be Radiohead, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and more, as Coachella has announced its official 2017 lineup. Joining the mega headliners will be names like Travis Scott, Dillon Frances, Father John Misty, the xx, Schoolboy Q, Bon Iver, Future, Gucci Mane, Lorde, Future Islands and many more.
With music festivals more competitive than ever, Coachella seems to always remain as the premiere music festival for North America, and don’t expect that to change this year. With performances from Beyonce and Radiohead, you almost can’t go wrong, and fortunately for Coachella fans, the festival’s supporting cast is just as impressive.
And although 2017 passes are all sold out, be sure to check out Coachella’s official website here for more information.
Coachella is notorious for artists’ surprise guests and while Kanye West’s guest appearances at weekend one of the California festival were certainly lit, no one had a more unique guest appearance than Run The Jewels. Although it was via video message, Killer Mike and El-P had a very special introduction from Democratic Presidential nominee Bernie Sanders.

Don’t worry Big Apple, Indio may be over a two thousand miles away but Coachella is coming to a city near you! Well kinda… Earlier today, Goldenvoice, the masterminds behind America’s premiere music festival Coachella, announced that their new music festival Panorama is officially coming to New York City. The new festival will take place at Randall’s Island Park from July 22-24, the same location of The Governors Ball.
It should come as no surprise that The Governors Ball was not happy when news of another big music festival in New York started to fly around, and they likely aren’t happy to hear that “Coachella East” will officially take place at the exact same park just weeks after their festival. The work isn’t totally cut out for Panorama though as The Governors Ball has one hell of a lineup this year, including a headlining performance from Kanye West, so if Panorama wants to take the title as New York’s best festival, they will need to have the lineup to go with it.
The Coachella lineup dropped less than 24 hours ago and people are already getting exciting. Taking place April 15-17 and April 22-24 this year, fans will see some awesome sets from Guns N’ Roses, Calvin Harris, LCD Soundsystem, Ice Cube, A$AP Rocky, Halsey, Ellie Goulding, Sia, Rae Sremmurd, Run The Jewels, Alessia Cara, Grimes, Zedd, JackÜ, Major Lazer and many more! With such a variety in its artists we felt compelled to rank the new lineup, but broken down by category.
Check out our complete ranking of Coachella’s 2016 lineup by category, below!
There is nothing more exciting than when the Coachella lineup drops. Even if you aren’t traveling to Indio to see it for yourself, Coachella often paves the way for how music festival lineups will look like in the summer to come. Coachella always goes big, continuing to live up to its reputation of America’s premiere music festival, and this year is no exception.
Coming to Coachella this year will be some big headliners (new and old) including LCD Soundsystem, Guns N’ Roses, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding Jack U, Disclosure, Ice Cube, Sia, and Major Lazer. Also performing this year will be Sufjan Stevens, G-Eazy, Rae Sremmurd, James Bay, Halsey, A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Death Grips to name a few.
